Selenium is an essential mineral that functions as an antioxidant to help fight free radicals to support healthy immune and cardiovascular function.*
Looking for a powerful antioxidant to help fight free radicals? Selenium is an essential mineral that does just that while also supporting healthy immune and cardiovascular function. Getting enough selenium is critical for the body's metabolism of iodine, which can also help support healthy thyroid function.
As an antioxidant, selenium supplements may offer a range of health benefits. Here's a look at who might benefit from taking selenium supplements.
People with certain medical conditions may benefit from taking selenium supplements. These include:
People with HIV/AIDS. Selenium levels tend to be lower in people with HIV/AIDS, and selenium supplements may help boost immune function.
Supports Healthy Cardiovascular and Immune System. As an antioxidant, selenium can help protect the body against damage from free radicals. As a result, it may help support a healthy cardiovascular and immune system.
Improves the body's Metabolism and Thyroid function. Selenium is involved in the metabolism of iodine, which is vital for proper thyroid function. Therefore, selenium supplements may help improve thyroid function and metabolism.
Helps to Maintain Healthy Skin. Selenium also produces collagen, which helps keep skin looking healthy and elastic. Therefore, selenium supplements may help maintain healthy skin.
People undergoing radiation therapy. Selenium may help protect cells from damage caused by radiation therapy.
People with certain autoimmune diseases. Selenium supplements may help reduce inflammation in people with autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and Hashimoto's disease.
People with type 2 diabetes. Selenium supplements may help improve insulin sensitivity and blood sugar control in people with type 2 diabetes.
Generally, it is safe to take selenium supplements in the recommended dosage. However, taking too much selenium can lead to side effects.
Some side effects of selenium supplement overdose include:
Nausea: One of the most common side effects of selenium supplement overdose is nausea. It can lead to vomiting and diarrhea, which can dehydrate the body and lead to other health problems.
Fatigue and drowsiness: Another common side effect of selenium supplement overdose is fatigue or drowsiness. It can make it difficult to concentrate and may cause you to feel dizzy or lightheaded.
Headaches: Headaches are yet another common side effect of selenium supplement overdose. It can range from mild to severe, and in some cases, may lead to migraines.
Skin rash: An overdose of selenium supplements can also lead to skin rash. It may be itchy or painful, and can sometimes lead to blisters or hives.
Abdominal Pain: In some cases, an overdose of selenium supplements may result in abdominal pain. It can range from mild to severe and may simultaneously occur with nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Kidney damage: Selenium supplement overdose can also cause kidney damage. It can lead to kidney failure, which can be fatal.
Coma: In extreme cases, selenium supplement overdose can lead to coma or death. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to seek medical help immediately.
It's tough to say how long it will take for a selenium supplement to work in your body. Unfortunately, there's no easy answer to this question. That's because the amount of time it takes for a selenium supplement to start working will vary from person to person.
Factors that can influence how long it takes for a selenium supplement to start working include:
The form of selenium you're taking: Selenium comes in many different forms, including selenomethionine, selenite, and selenate. Our body absorbs some forms of selenium better than others, so the form you're taking may affect how quickly it starts working.
Your overall health: If you're generally healthy, you may find that your body responds to selenium supplements more quickly than someone who is dealing with health issues.
Your diet: If you eat a diet rich in selenium-containing foods, you may not see as much of an effect from selenium supplements as someone who doesn't eat many selenium-rich foods.
The amount of selenium you're taking: The more selenium you take, the quicker you may see results. Keeping in mind the side effects of selenium overdose, always adhere to the dosage recommended by your doctor.

A safe and accurate address for delivery must be provided at the time the order is placed. Once an order has shipped, SupplementRelief.com is NOT responsible for lost or stolen packages CONFIRMED BY THE CARRIER to be delivered to the address provided for the order.
Since COVID-19, and the ensuing economic challenges in the USA economy, we respectfully ask that you allow some additional time for delivery for the carriers (USPS, UPS, and FedEx). Most orders still arrive on time, or near on time, but some may run late. We make every effort to get your order packed and into the carriers hands the same day, or by the next business morning if your order came in later in the previous day after carrier pickup, but we have no control over any delays that may happen within the shipping carrier's delivery system. Please order earlier for the time being if you are time-sensitive.
Orders that contain only FirstFitness Nutrition products have a shipping fee automatically calculated based upon the actual shipping weight of the items purchased. The charge ranges from $4.95 to $14.95.
For orders with NuMedica products you may choose from the shipping options below on the Order Checkout form in the Shipping Information section on the first line that says Choose Shipping Method.
|United States||Standard||3-6 Days||$4.95|
|United States||Priority||2-4 Days||$9.95|
|United States||Free||7-10 Days||$0.00|
|International||FedEx International||4-7 Days||$79.95*|
|International||GlobalPost International||12-21 Days||$39.95*|
|*International shipping costs may be higher depending upon package weight and destination. We will contact you for your approval of the additional amount if this occurs.|
SupplementRelief.com may use the email or phone number provided on your Order to call or text you regarding Order Status or to inform you of changes to the Order Policy.
When your order ships we will send you a confirmation email with the delivery tracking information.
Shipping anything these days internationally is expensive. COVID resulted in more rigorous customs import processes, and now with much higher energy prices, international shipping rates are higher.
FedEx is the most reliable and faster carrier, at least for now, but they are expensive. Our FedEx international shipping fee is a minimum of $79.95. It usually makes more sense to get several months of supply (3 months or more) in one order to minimize the shipping expense per order over time. While the added weight of additional items may increase the base shipping price by a little (usually 10-25% depending upon total weight and destination), it is usually not by very much relative to shipping an additional small order later.
We also offer a lower-cost international shipping option using GlobalPost International for $39.95. So far, they have been reliable in getting packages correctly delivered but it takes 2 - 4 times as long to get the package delivered. Packages may take longer to process in the receiving country's customs process and status updates may not be reported as quickly. Please be patient if you choose this option to save money.
Some International orders may cost more to ship depending upon weight and location. If that happens we will contact you first and get your approval for any additional charge before proceeding. International orders may also be subject to additional customs fees and duties/taxes based upon the destination country's customs import laws and policies. These fees are NOT known or included on our order form and are typically charged and collected by the shipping carrier when they are delivering the product to it's final destination once the package has cleared the destination country's customs process. It is recommended that the buyer research custom import fees for the products/services they are importing beforehand to be aware of potential, additional fees.
Our manufacturers formulate their probiotics to ensure their products retain viability until they reach the consumer. Probiotics that are recommended to be refrigerated remain so until the time of shipment, then shipped alongside an ice pack to ensure potency (Note: Ice pack will not arrive frozen, and product may not arrive cold). Orders placed on a Thursday-Sunday requiring cold shipping will not ship until the following Monday.
If your order has not been shipped yet, you can request a cancellation. Your original purchase amount will be refunded within three business days. If your order has already shipped, see Returns and Refunds.
If you want to make a change to your order, please email us as soon as possible so we can make the change before your order ships. If your order has already shipped you may incur additional shipping charges for the second shipment and the return label for any products returned.
If we have made a mistake on your order, or the product arrives in a damaged or unusable condition, we will make every reasonable effort to right the situation quickly to your satisfaction.
We accept returns subject to when the return is requested and the condition the product is returned in. All returns must first be authorized by contacting us. In your request, please let us know why you are returning the item(s). We will respond promptly with authorization, the return address, and a return shipping label if appropriate.
If your order has already shipped you can return any un-opened products within 30 days of receiving your order for a 100% refund of the price paid for the product, less the actual shipping charges we incurred to get the product to you originally and then returned, less a $10 restocking fee. Un-opened means the protective seal on the bottle or container, or the shrink-wrap on the box or kit, has not been broken and the product has not otherwise been damaged in any way. You may use the original packaging for the return or acquire your own. We will provide the return shipping label. We DO NOT accept returns for NuMedica products once the protective product seal has been broken.
Upon receipt of returned product(s), we will refund your credit card within three business days for the product(s) returned.
